Thankful

November 21, 2007

Tomorrow in the US, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. Tonight, I would like to share some of the things for which I am thankful.

  • for the rain that we are currently receiving.
  • for the three of my hens that survived the attack by the neighbors dogs.
  • for my home, my family, my church and my friends
  • for the things that I have learned in the past year
  • for the gift of laughter shared with family and friends.
  • for a measure of good health. Even with various my aches and pains, I am still healthier than most.
  • for all the necessities of life that have been so richly supplied
  • for my internet friends who allow me to blab on and on without telling me that I am monumentally boring and who gently encourage me to continue writing
  • and for a life overflowing with the bountiful blessings of God

For these and so many other things, I am truly thankful. God has blessed my life richly. I would like to share one of my favorite psalms. I always think of it at this time of year. Thank you Mrs. Allen for making me memorize it- I still remember.

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
